Corero Boosts DDoS Defense with Edge Router Integration and Advanced DNS Protection

By Greg Tavarez

DDoS attacks, or Distributed Denial of Service attacks, are a significant threat that can impact online services in a variety of ways. Contrary to the misconception that they only involve massive, multi-terabit attacks that go on for hours, the reality is quite different. The majority of DDoS attacks are surprisingly smaller in scale, with about 98% of them being less than 10 Gbps and 75% lasting less than 10 minutes, according to Corero Network Security.

Furthermore, DDoS attacks are not isolated incidents but can be part of a sustained campaign. There is a 24% chance of a repeat attack occurring within a week after the initial assault, making it clear that organizations need to be prepared for multiple waves of disruption. These attacks can be sudden and unexpected, catching victims off guard. In some cases, they might be part of organized crime activities, where attackers demand payment to halt the attack.

When such DDoS attacks take place, they can have a crippling effect on businesses, rendering their online services nearly powerless to respond. The financial and reputational damage inflicted by DDoS attacks should not be underestimated, and it is crucial for organizations to have robust security measures in place to mitigate this evolving threat.

That is why many organizations turn to Corero as they are a provider of DDoS protection solutions, specializing in automatic detection and protection solutions with network visibility, analytics and reporting tools. Corero's technology protects against external and internal DDoS threats in complex edge and subscriber environments, ensuring internet service availability.

In more recent news, Corero announced a milestone in the evolution of its SmartWall ONE DDoS protection solution.

SmartWall ONE advances with the latest version to a modular architecture integrating with industry-leading routers, increasing protection against DNS-based attacks and adding 100G software appliances.

Here are some key benefits.

Corero's integration with routers like Juniper's MX and PTX models turns edge devices into real-time security sensors, blocking DDoS attacks at the edge with precision. This provides rapid automated threat responses and robust asset protection. Additionally, support for BGP FlowSpec offers versatile multi-vendor DDoS protection, enhancing the value of existing infrastructure investments.

Corero SmartWall ONE also introduces new protections countering the growing trend of DNS infrastructure and TCP-based threats.

Additionally, Corero established the gold standard for performance, pushing the boundaries by introducing 100G DDoS protection tailored for a software-driven era. As the industry increasingly adopts software-based network infrastructure solutions, Corero is prepared to expand its offerings with the software-driven SmartWall ONE DDoS protection solutions.

"We continually enhance our platform to stay ahead of rapidly evolving cyber threats. This major update empowers our customers to take control of their DDoS protection like never before," said Ashley Stephenson, Corero's chief technology officer.
